In 2011, I created FLIP It Consulting, an educational consulting company focused on faculty development and teaching and learning in higher education. My team and I provide professional development events and create resources for educators who want to FLIP their classes, engage students, and improve learning.

What’s the FLIP?

The FLIP is when you “Focus on your Learners by Involving them in the Process.” When you FLIP, you intentionally invert the design a learning environment so students engage in activities, apply concepts, and focus on higher level learning outcomes when they are with you in the classroom.

My 4-part model is based my research, my teaching philosophy, and my work with faculty development over the past 16 years. With this framework, you will learn how to plan, organize, and implement successful flipped learning experiences to enhance both student AND faculty success. It takes the integration of the faculty member, the students, and the appropriate instructional design strategies to create a successful learning environment and flipped learning experiences. And we break it down for you and show you how it’s done!

What do we do?

My colleagues and I work with you to create environments that engage students and improve learning using the FLIP. We do this by facilitating professional development workshops, developing resources, conducting research, and providing instructional coaching to support you in designing successful flipped and active learning experiences. Whether you’re looking for a few ideas to add to a lecture or you’re re-designing your entire course, we are with you every step of the way.

Why work with us?

All of our events are grounded in theory, informed by research, and designed for practical application. When we work together, you’ll see that we “practice what we teach.” We FLIP it! Our events are interactive and dynamic.

And, we end each event with “The Reveal” where we share our secrets, discuss which FLIP strategies we used, and explore how you can adapt these ideas to use in your own classes.

Highlights of our recent work:

  • Developed a 3-year comprehensive faculty development program for a brand new college which included workshops, individual coaching sessions, classroom observations, and faculty research projects.
  • Co-developed the national survey on flipped learning led by Faculty Focus and The Teaching Professor. This survey included responses from more than 1,000 educators across the country to analyze the current status of the flipped classroom model in higher education.
  • Supported a team of teaching center staff in developing a week-long summer teaching institute for faculty.
  • Developed a plan for a full-course redesign for a continuing education certification program.
  • Invited to lead pre-conference workshops for the Teaching Professor Technology Conference.

We look forward to working with you…let’s FLIP it!

I have been using various constructivist methodologies for nearly two decades, and while I have grown to be very, very comfortable with the “loose” structures that characterize this approach, I have struggled around how to create a coherent architecture for a class. Dr. Honeycutt’s workshop has solved this problem for me. This model has given me the framework I needed to build the logic model for any class. Even more, it provides a great framework for designing entire curricula. After your workshop, I have been using it consistently with great results. Needless to say, it was one of those pivotal moments for me, providing tools that will influence my career for many years to come.
